Zooming in on Loss is Ann Van den Broek’s second production in the triptych The Memory Loss Collection. Zooming in on Loss focuses on the internal struggle, loss and the relation between the individuals and their social environment. Rage and frustration, sadness and pain, resignation and indifference, are exposed in a mosaic of emotions.
Zooming in on Loss takes place in a compact spatial installation with which Van den Broek chooses for the raw experiment. Boundaries are pushed, freedom of movement is sacrificed and intensity is gained.
Zooming in on Loss is a multidisciplinary production in which performance, sound, the spoken word, video and emotional expressions are blended together. Clarity is forever swept away by a state of disorientation, confusion, chaos and madness.
